πŸ”° Basic Code Solution:

function convertToF(celsius) {
  // Only change code below this line
  var fahrenheit = (celsius * (9/5)) + 32;

  // Only change code above this line
  if ( typeof fahrenheit !== 'undefined' ) {
  return fahrenheit;
  } else {
    return 'fahrenheit not defined';

// Change the inputs below to test your code

Code Explanation:

  • Declare the fahrenheit variable.
  • Make sure the proper order of arithmetic operations is followed by using parenthesis (()) when needed.
